300 series GPUs will launch mid-June, Fiji XT GPUs following later
AMD's next generation of GPUs might hit the market a lot sooner than we expected. Rumour has it that the first of the Rx 300 series GPUs will be released on June 18th, while the more high-end Fiji GPUs featuring stacked High Bandwidth Memory will hit the (digital) shelves on the 24th of June. Note the word 'rumour' though, as these dates haven't been confirmed by AMD.
Fan-made concept poster for the upcoming Fiji XT GPU
Tech site Benchlife.info posted some undisclosed sources on the release dates of these graphics adapters. This same source also mentions that AMD is planning to reveal their new GPUs at the Computex Taipei 2015 conference early June. The first 300 GPUs to launch are the R7 360, R7 370 and the R9 380 series of GPUs, which will probably be rebrands of older GPUs.
The Fiji XT GPUs will release six days later, on the 24th of June. This GPU will reportedly feature a revamped GCN 1.3 architecture and 4GBs of stacked HBM (according to the latest reports). The card will supposedly come in a WCE edition (with an integrated AIO cooler). As far as other specifications, the latest reports state that the GPU will feature 4096 stream processors and 256 texture units. The HBM will have up to 640 GB/s of bandwidth. Yup, that's some seriously High Bandwidth Memory.
AMD has yet to comment on this leak. What do you think? Are these release dates accurate? Leave your speculations here.
